Pieter-Steph du Toit underwent surgery and lost the Championship

The Springboks suffer a big loss for the Rugby Championship and possibly for the remainder of the year. Pieter-Steph du Toit, will be out of action for a long period after undergoing shoulder surgery, as stated by Jacques Nienaber’s own head coach.

Du Toit was replaced in the 22nd minute of the first half in South Africa’s 27-9 win over the British and Irish Lions in the second meeting after a tackle on Duhan van der Merwe.

Therefore, the third clash was missed and Nienaber has confirmed the severity of the injury, and the Stormers forwards could be missed for the remainder of 2021.

“Pieter-Steph had shoulder surgery on Monday and I spoke with him briefly. It went well, but it will be out for some time, ”Nienaber told reporters.

“I’m not 100% sure (if he will be able to play again this year). At this point, I would be lying if I set a time frame for the length of rehabilitation required. “
